Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) on Thursday, 9 December, 2010, on the eve of International Anti-Corruption Day, launched an exclusive website to Expose Corruption, called ‘Vig-Eye‘ (short for ‘vigilance eye’) to expose corruption in India.

The web portal would enable citizens to upload video/audio clips directly from their mobile phones exposing corruption in government departments (Login require).

Addressing a seminar on ‘ Empowering citizens to combat corruption’, P J Thomas (Central vigilance commissioner), who himself facing a legal challenge to his appointment, launched the website on Thursday, 9 December. “Vig-Eye provides a simplified process to file complaints.

The complainants will also be able to access the status of their complaints (from website). And the advantage of Vig-Eye includes a simplified process of filing complaints and it will provide authentic identity of the complainant. Vig-Eye would be completely digitised and it will give online access to vigilance information” he said at a seminar.

The important features of Project Vigeye are:
1. Citizens have multiple channels to air their grievances and complaints to CVC .
a) Through their mobile phones: by downloading the mobile application from the CVC website. The complaints can be better articulated with additional data like audio/ video/ photo evidence from their mobiles directly.
b) Through the internet: by filling up the complaint form online they can attach audio/video/photo evidence.
c) Through telephone: help line have been setup.

2. The entire complaint processing is done online, in digital form, enabling fast and accurate processing of complaints.
3. The concerned CVO will interact with the complainant directly over phone/email or in person, as the case may be, to take it forward.
4. Status of the complaint is communicated back to the complainant – the communication loop becomes complete.

The (Audio/Video) files uploaded by user on web portal will be taken up by the commission for further enquiries. The new portal would enable even common man to carry out a sting operation (lets cross the fingers).

Project Vigeye ‘Vig-Eye’ would provide the user-friendly platform for citizens so that they can disclose information on illegal activities. In order to file a complaint, citizens just need to download a mobile application software from the CVC website.
